February 2nd to 27th, 2019
The inPrint Collective Studio
58 Wade Ave, Unit 8A, Toronto, Canada
Opening reception Saturday, February 2nd from 1pm to 4pm.
The inPrint Collective is proud to announce our inaugural exhibition in our new space, “Exquisite Bouquet”.
Inspired by the surrealist game, “the exquisite corpse”, all the current members of the inPrint Collective have come together to create this collaborative display. Exquisite Bouquet is a varied series of prints, each piece containing iterations of work from each participating artist. Every print contains a unique grouping of flowers, plants and insects, using relief, screen printing, stamping and collage. By working collaboratively, we are each building and supporting one another’s creative processes, culminating in a collection of colourful, floral prints in the midst of the grey winter.
Upcoming Art Markets:

During the second workshop they’ll create two books out of their musings including a stab bound collection of their writings, as well as an accordion-style book work inspired by their favourite poetic response.
